can agree on george bush deserves no credit for that war. you would never know it from yesterday's white house briefing. i mean jay carney was asked about the administration's reactions to the anniversary. he said, we are glad the war is over, we salute our men and women in the military. a reporter from fox says well, if the iraqi people are better off because saddam hussein is no longer there, you have to give george bush some credit. i almost fell off of my chair. jay carney said, of course we give george bush some credit. no we don't. no we don't. everything george bush said about the reason for starting that war turned out to be a big, fat law. no weapons of mass destruction, no nukes, no navy no air force, no justification for war. yes, our men and women in the military did a good job in iraq. but george bush gets no credit for starting that war in the first place. hey, see you right back here tomorrow. have a good one. >> this is "the bill press show." ♪ theme ♪ >> well, it's day three of the hostage negotiation known as he will's park sit

/11. there were those in the bush administration who saw this as their opportunity. they were helped by war hawks on the outside. "the washington post" op-ed page. the weekly standard. the new republic were open billboards for the relentless push toward war. establishment media joining in offering uncritical coverage of the administration line. this is not a good statement about the american press. i'd like to believe my generation, especially those who grow up in maturity to the horror and dishonesty of vietnam would have spoken loudly against the war hawks. few, mostly on the left, did. fewer from the middle. still fewer from the right. what's worse than that in those months of late 2001, 2002, and early 2003, to oppose the war when there was time to stop it, worse yet, to question its motivation, was to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media was useless. even when the culture of the country i.t. itself, country music
in president bush's book "decision points" he says he wished he had done immigration before social security, because he thinks there would have been bipartisan support for it before he tried. but it failed mostly because harry reid called a cloture vote. over, some of the issues take a long time to marinate. that that as people thought it through, i think they realize it's not having a good comprehensive immigration policy is hurting us economically and it's not the right thing to do. it's time to solve it. i admire everyone for coming to the table. but i want to make a point. what rand paul is saying is contrast to gang of eight. his idea is security first, legalization and then citizenship. gang of eight put forward legalization, security and then citizenship. that seems like you could find a compromise, but that is a big leap between security and legalization piece and flipping them. >> andrea: what do you think, eric? >> eric: rand paul opened up a can of whoop-ass on the hill and they were flooded with calls say dog you care to weigh in on rand paul's idea? he threw people for a loop.
. another terrible day in baghdad. the anniversary of george bush's announcement that america was at war with iraq. 55 people killed. more than 200 wounded. very hard to see that there is anything but chronic instability and continued hideous bloodshed there. what is your take? >> it's such a tragedy really the way things have unfolded in iraq. just looking at iraqi faces, seeing how pale they had become. we are hearing after one attack after another. people's voices actually began trembling. this is violence that, first of all, the iraqis never even imagined would end up being the outcome of america's war in iraq. so many of them hoped and dreamed they would have true freedom, democracy, that their horizons would be open. they have dealt with everything, all of the violence that wrecked this country over the past ten years. to be reminded of it again on the tenth anniversary shocked people and completely and totally devastated them, piers. >> it comes of course as the crisis in syria reaches what could be a tipping point where there are reports that president assad, although still uncon
, whether it is mr. bush, mr. cheney, anyone who served in war would've known right off the bat or should have known these guys never served in war and we got the outcome that we did. host: you served in the first gulf war? correct. caller: there were two different strategies. the first, the iraqi invasion of kuwait. a country about the size of new jersey. over 700,000 troops to kick them out of the country. 500,000 of those troops were coalition troops. you are talking a whole different ballgame when you are talking about removing an army from a country as opposed to invading and occupying. those are two different kettles of fish. host: veteran from ohio. brenda in memphis, tennessee. i make aes, may comment first? . am a former u.s. marine i was a staff sergeant during the vietnam era. i want to say this much. they are talking about us going when our country is struggling. they want to cut support on social security. if you look at the ryan budget, it is a budget that is totally on steroids against the poor. i don't understand why we don't rebel -- now, let's talk about iraq. iraqi is a
're talking obama versus bush. >> i'm talking about the real government, wall street, the banks, the corporations that made $2 trillion is what we spent on the iraq war. who made that money? soldiers in the field? no, i don't think so. this is always about the people who have the purse strings and the politicians who are bought off by them, and so if they come on now and tell me anything about this, you know, ahmadinejad is building a bomb, really? well, i'll believe it, you know, when he walks in a room with it and shows it to me. frankly that's really how much i would not trust anything being said by the military industrial complex of this great country. >> when you see what happens in just today in baghdad, 55 people killed if i think 17 different bombings, two other assassinations took place, 200-plus people wounded. that's a typical day in baghdad. >> that's right. >> over the last few years. >> that's right. >> i mean, this is not peace. >> right. >> this is not democracy. >> this is not freedom. >> right. >> what is it? >> what it is is -- first of all, we set this thing

. in the wake of 9/11, president bush and secretary of state colin powell made the case that saddam hussein was set to use weapons of mass destruction. the u.s. invasion was easy, but the mission was not accomplished by that may, even though some insist today u.s. forces did succeed. war planner douglas fife. >> saddam was in fact an extremely dangerous guy. >> martin dempsey. >> today we have in iraq a partner, not an adversary. >> reporter: but 2003 to 2008 was a nightmare of roadside bombs and civil war. a hard lesson. >> we went into iraq without a real plan for how to stabilize the place afterwards. >> reporter: 100,000 iraqis died. nearly 4500 americans lost their lives. many tens of thousands more suffered permanent physical and emotional injuries. illinois congresswoman tammy duckworth, a chopper pilot lost both legs. she said today the war is not over for veterans like her. >> suicides and mental health and untreated brain injuries. we will be taking care of these men and women for the next 60 years. >> reporter: 53% of americans now feet it was a u.s. mistake to send troops to ira
